Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

Man of Steel is scheduled for release in Japan in late August. Maybe August is one of the stronger months there and studios think it's worth the delay.

Worldwide grosses for the big summer releases so far:

Iron Man 3 - $1.203 billion
Fast & Furious 6 - $636.9 million
Star Trek Into Darkness - $412.2 million
The Hangover Part III - $309.8 million
The Great Gatsby - $300.2 million
Epic - $212.7 million
Man of Steel - 196.7 million
Now You See Me - $107.7 million
After Earth - $102.8 million
Right, so STID isn't in the billion dollar league, but it is still in the top three blockbusters this summer. Maybe not for long, once Man of Steel catches fire.

It should still finish in the top ten movies of the year, I should hope.

Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

Yeah just saw it confirmed at Boxoffice.com: http://www.boxoffice.com/latest-news...ise-best-6369m

Also BoxofficeMojo:

http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?pag...startrek12.htm

$412.191 million.

Has anyone noticed that although Fast and Furious made more than any film in the franchise how it has stalled out at barely $9 million more than STID domestically?

Yeah. Much like Star Trek and Star Wars are the Beatles and Rolling Stones of sci fi. You can like both, but not both equally.

That was to be expected. I said a while back in this thread that they would probably end up with similar domestic grosses despite F&F 6's bigger opening. The F&F franchise has always been extremely frontloaded domestically.

If the year-end chart for 2013 is similar to the last few years, STiD will likely be about #8 for the year domestically and about #14 worldwide.

Japan usually opens movies months after other countries. From what I understand, they want to see how well it does elsewhere first. If true, it's kinda weird.

Yes. Sure. And I like both my daughters equally.

Well, you probably can, but that means appreciating the stylistic differences that distinguish and define them. At least in my opinion, it's not playing to strength for a Superman movie to have a brooding and overly grave feel to it any more than I would want to hear a Beatles cover of "Sympathy for the Devil" or have Kirk's first officer be a character like a Wookiee.

Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

I live in Toronto, my family decided to take my dad to see MOS while I wasn't shocked to find MOS was sold out I was shocked that STID was also sold out too. This was a large theater downtown so I guess we know where some of the MOS overspill is going haha!

I'll take as many Kirks as they throw at me.

There's been tons of reboots of all sorts throughout history. This one is no different to me. In fact, it may be better than most.
I tend to agree. Having been a Kirkaholic for over 40 years, I was wary going into the '09 film. Very shocked, yet pleasantly surprised with the new direction; overall I am happy with how things turned out. I am pleased with my hundred buck contribution to the franchise at the cinema.

I don't need any Kirk. That said, I've enjoyed watching the both of them and expect to see one or two more.

Lex Luthor is Superman's greatest villain, not Zod.

It'd be moronic to say it's impossible.

STID opened with $3.1 million in this weekend in Brazil. Whereas Star Trek 2009 grossed only $ 1.9 million, that calls for a celebration. Besides country's media coverage has largely focused on Confederations Cup soccer tournament.
I believe the film range from 10 to 20 million dollars.

This is excellent news!

Does this $3.1m figure include the previews from the previous 4 weeks? If so I think it will be toward the lower end of your prediction but hopefully it finishes at the higher end! 5x-10x increase over ST09!
